Margaret L P Adam, MD

Genetics, Differences in Sex Development, Prenatal Diagnosis and Treatment

On staff since September 2009

Academic Title: Professor

Research Center: Center for Clinical and Translational Research

"What we do in genetics is a lot of diagnostics, putting things together and being able to provide a family with an answer for why their child has specific issues. It's rewarding to provide those answers and give parents an idea of what they can expect in the future. These families want answers, and we work to provide those answers for them."

  • Margaret L.P. Adam, MD, is an attending physician at Seattle Children's Hospital and a professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Dr. Adam's clinical interests include the diagnosis and management of infants, children, and adolescents with a variety of genetic conditions.

    Dr. Adam has a special interest in Mowat-Wilson syndrome, for which she has conducted clinical research in the past. She is currently involved as the primary geneticist in the Multidisciplinary Differences in Sex Development (DSD) clinic at Seattle Children's Hospital and she recently joined the Multidisciplinary 22q11 Deletion syndrome clinic. She also provides genetic consultations for pregnant women through the Prenatal Diagnostic Center at the University of Washington. Her current clinical research projects include working as a dysmorphologist on the Autoimmune Diseases in Pregnancy Project with the Organization of Teratology Information Specialists (OTIS) and on the Collaboration to Establish the Prevalence of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders in association with the University of California, San Diego.

      I am so happy Dr. Adam is part of our daughter's treatment as she is genuinely concerned, helpful, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. I trust her advice and know she has my daughter's and family's interest at heart. I just wish she was our pediatrician!
